constitution for that country. one that gave president mohammed morsi new powers. steve harrigan is standing by live in cairo with more. >> remarkable scene in cairo this morning outside egypt supreme constitutional court. to put it simply, the court justices could not get in their own building. the judges will suspend their work while the atmosphere of intimidation physical a mental intimidation exist. the supreme court say they cannot do the work because of the mob around their building. it was likely they would rule on the legitimacy of egypt constitutional assembly. that body pushed through the constitution, the draft on friday. they go for a national referendum, up or down vote on december 15. if the constitution goes through, egypt president morsi says the extreme powers which he declared that he possessed would be void and it would go to normal here in egypt. richard morrison himself has strong public support. we have 200,000 people. mainly members of the muslim brotherhood who support the president come out on the street to show support. loud and emotional way. >> shannon: steve harr

wondering who is going to be the next treasury secretary. joining me steve rattner, wall street finance year, former head of president obama's auto task force. thanks for joining us, steve. first of all, what about the scenario that oh let's just let them go over the cliff and won't matter and the markets will view it as a nonevent. what do you think some. >> certainly going to matter. there's no question it's going to matter. it's going to matter to the markets. we don't know how much. this is an unprecedented situation, at least in my lifetime. we've had crises and debt ceilings and all that, but going over a cliff like this is a new one. the markets would be volatile, extremely -- a lot of downward pressure on them. and then the question would be how do businesses and consumers behave and quickly do they pull back? everyone knows the immediate impact from the government coming back and spending wouldn't be that great. the question then is how do businesses and consumers react? i don't think it will be a pretty sight. >> what about the debt ceiling? there was a suggestion? geithner's openi

the new constitution that morsi's allies in the constituent assembly rushed through. >> steve, what is the army's role in all of this. that's the piece people don't understand. you have morsi, muslim brotherhood and others behind this constitution. liberals, secularists opposing it. where does the army stand? >> the military has essentially removed itself from the political system. the new military leadership that came into power in mid-august as a result of morsi's declarations have a deal with him. they were relieved of the burden of having to govern egypt. removing themselves from the political system is more in keeping with the history of the egypt armed forces since the 1967 defeat when they determined being a political army was not good for their organization and their ability to fight a war on the battlefield. >> when you look at the struggle, is it first of all essentially the islamist versus the secularist, and is it fair to say as everybody does the islamists have greater appeal, they're better organized, they're going to win this? >> i think it is, right now there are bas
been wasted. >> steve centanni kicks off our college tonight from washington d.c. steve, where exactly do we stand tonight? >> well, harris, democrats are hoping republicans to raise taxes on the wealthy and the republicans are accusing the white house of wasting time. and saying that he didn't have a serious proposal when he reintroduced a plan to reduce 4 trillion dollars. >> the president asking for 1.6 trillion dollars worth of new revenue over ten years, twice as much as he's been asking for in public. his system spending in here that exceeded the amount of new cuts that he was willing to consider. it was not a serious offer. >> but so far it's the only white house offer on the table, a starting point for further negotiations, one would assume, harris? >> not to sound pessimistic, but it's a fact, even if he reached a deal tonight, it would tough to meet that deadline by the end of the year, because there's red tape profit to deal with. >> that's right, it takes time and time to get the legislation drafted and passed and to get it scored by the congressional budget office to deter
about israel and how many times they moved the red line. >> steve, the interesting thing about this syrian situation is there could be other kcountries that decide to act militarily or there could be a coalition that does this. it won't have to be the united states alone. yesterday we had goldberg on, your colleague at the atlantic, who reported israel is preparing, turkey is preparing. i also assume at this point the tax cutter, uae, the gulf states would participate in something like this as well. what do you know and what are you hearing? >> well, i think that's right and i think the right model to think about is libya and what you have in libya and what you may have in syria is essentially an atrocity driven strategy. in other words you get right to the edge of, you know, a benghazi wipeout or a potential real use of chemical weapons and then that drives the coalition response. i think it's highly doubtful that the qatar would take action but highly probable a calculation that involves turkey and thus nato forces were to take action if chemical weapons were to be used and i

, congressman steve israel, democrat of new york. congressman, nice to see you back here on the show. >> thanks, brooke. >> i understand you, yourself, have been reaching out to some of the house republicans on this. have you spoken to any of them? >> i have. and you're right, it is tough for a republican to break with his or her party and sign this petition to give a tax cut to 100% of all americans on the first $250,000. what's tougher, i think, is for them to go home and have to explain to people who are making $100,000, $200,000 that they're not going to get a tax break, that their taxes are going to go up $2,000 in order to protect the richest 2%. now, look, i personally believe that that $250,000 figure is too low. if you represent a high cost of living area like mine, i think it should be higher. but i'm not willing to go back to long island and explain to somebody who is making less than $250,000 that they're going to be held hostage for people making more. agree on the 250 and get to the higher number. >> the republican as you point out, the tougher task is to go back to their constitu
